Make a GIF Look Old

  • Post category:GIF / Grunge

SuperTool’s Grunge Maker adds noise, rotation, dirt and more to make a GIF look aged, used, and simply old. It works by adding dust and artifacts to each frame of the GIF and then combining them together again. It results in a black and white GIF that looks old (like an old film movie perhaps?).

Aged GIF

Old movie reels look that way because they dust and scratches have gotten on the surface of the film. When light is projected through the film, it picks up the aged look and projects it onto a screen. The screen itself may be discolored and wavy adding to an analog look that is classic. Add this kind of effect with SuperTool’s online Grunge Maker.

Add Dirt and Noise to a GIF

Simply adjust the Scanned-ness and Dirty-ness sliders to customize the old look of you GIF. You can add more or less dirt and optical manipulation to make your GIF look old. Too much dirt looks fake, so go easy to start.

Process up to 100 frames of a GIF

The server must process each frame separately and it uses energy, processing power, and memory, so limits are required. But 100 frames is still a lot — most GIFs have fewer frames. If you need to process longer GIFs, shoot us an email at [email protected].
